Linger On

I’d like to spend a little time without the monkey
Spend a little without the claw
Breathe a little air that’s not been turned into a word
And linger on

I’d like to spend a little time without the watchband
Dancing on the corners of the wall
Dropping all the beats
I lost my sense of time
To linger on

Chorus:

Hold me so silently
It’s warmer on the other side
Where the waters tend to take their time
And the intimate hours survive

I want to spend a little time without the toolbox
Spend a summer day without the saw
Find a wooden chair that’s not been hammered to a pulp
And linger on

I’d like to spend a little time without the cargo
Spend the crooked voyage looking out
Perched upon the mast
Yonder the horizon lingers on

Chorus
